Android System UI testing with appium


I am trying to test android system ui elements like the notification bar or the navigation bar, but seems like appium is not able to access those element and interact with them.

Is there a way to test android system ui with appium ?

Thank you ! :smiley:

Try to set enableMultiWindows setting to true in UIA2 driver with the recent Appium version. This should uncover more elements under the page source. See for more details

Thank you for your answer !

I tried to set enableMultiWindows to true but now appium is not able to take a screenshot of the device.
Also, I have to add that there are system ui applications which have the NOT_FOCUSABLE flag.
